Eau Claire Judge suggests increased security at courthouse

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - At Wednesday's Eau Claire County Board meeting a suggestion to increase security at the courthouse came up.

Judge William Gabler gave a report to the County Board and suggested there be security screenings for those entering the courts. 

Judge Gabler says over the past two years between 50 and 60 large knives have been brought into Eau Claire courtrooms inadvertently.

"What else is being brought into the courthouse? What else is being brought into the building? We of course don't know, because they're not being screened," he said.

There was no estimate on the cost for screenings and no word whether the county will take it up.
